Myth Factory Films Unleashes First Trailer For 'Il Sonnambulo'

It's not very often we cover web series on the DW. Then again it's not very often that we get a web series as awesome sounding as director Douglas Rath's Il Sonnambulo. After a quick teaser on Eli Roth's hot mess of a horror app The Crypt, Il Sonnambulo dropped it's first teaser trailer today ahead of it's debut this Halloween. Check it out along with a lengthy synopsis and some stills below.

"Like a faded shock rocker clinging on to the vestiges of a world that has moved on, Atticus Hurst - fêted photographer, infamous provocateur - has been living on the after-glow of fame. Locked into a dangerously symbiotic relationship with his muse, Il Sonnambulo, an almost mythological killer, Atticus is always tipped off by a mysterious, random caller (who never survives) at precisely 2:37 am the night of the killings. First on the scene he has found fortune - and infamy - photographing Il Sonnambulo's atrocities. Over three decades he has traversed the globe documenting them all. The last seven years has been quiet for Il Sonnambulo - and Hurst - yet despite Atticus's fading notoriety, his ambition to hunt Il Sonnambulo has not.

Cutting through the din of empty, drug-binging anarchy, a call at 2:37am pushes Atticus back to the world of very real horror-show crime scenes, this time cropping up in London, scarring the civilized world's collective consciousness. Reluctantly enlisting help from Roberto, an ambitious hacker turned journalist hoping to crack the darkly glittering façade of Atticus's celebrity, the two endeavor to track down Il Sonnambulo: a mission that confronts them with crimes of unprecedented savagery, and a haunting from Atticus's past that he never could have imagined.

As the two are drawn into the dark corners of London where the grotesque tableau are found, veritable Doré etchings of death, oblivion and futility await them. This nihilistic romp will either consecrate Hurst's legacy or burn them both to the ground.
